PREF A^OE. 



This book is the fruit of many years of extended investigation and 
patient research. Those ooly who have engaged in simihir pur- 
suits can be aware of the untold lalK>r required to collect and systema- 
tize the jnmbled materials for a volume like this. The driblets have 
been called here and there from state, county, town, parish, church and 
family records, and from an extended correspondence with individuals 
wha were intimately connected with particular bmnches of the family. 
To the many valued friends who have assisted in the enterprize grate- 
ful acknowledgments are tendered. 

It is confidently felt that while unimportant inaccuracies may ap- 
pear, the genealogy as a whole is perfectly reliable. This assertion is 
made in full view of the consideration that many persons who will 
pemse these pages have o^ucli better means of information concerning 
some families than can reasonably be expected from the writer. Those 
who are competent to detect blemishes will, it is hoped, make due al- 
lowance should they be found, while they remember it is much easier 
to find fault with the work than to do it better. It is well nigh impos- 
sible to produce a publication of this kind which shall be entirely free 
froin imperfections. A certain author defines all history to be merely 
"an approximation towards truth." Without endorsing fully this 
humiliating statement, yet, when the imperfection of everything human 
is considered, it must be admitted the sentiment has some foundation 
in fact. There doubtless are omissions in the book though it includes, 
so &r as could be obtained, every person of the name in its varied 
orthography throughout the United States. And there are probably 
some mistakes since it is impossible at this late day to prepare gene<> 
alogical statistics with perfect accuracy. Honest George Dyer, a clas- 
sical scholar and writer of the last generation whose long life of 
literary toil exemplified the extreme care he eulogizes, asks enthusias- 
tically, ** Who can calculate on the consequence of a single date, some- 
times to an individual, sometimes to a family, and sometimes even 



VI 

to the public ?" If under the ciroumstatices, the depravity of figures 
has represented some individuals as born a century or two out of time, 
or forced them into incongruous marriages, or prematurely consigned 
them to the shades, they can console themselves with the reflection 
that they are at liberty still to live on as though no such mishap had 
occurred. 

Very few such books will ever be written a second time ; the pains 
are too great and the praise is too little. In the present instance how- 
ever, the "years and years of dismal drudgery evidenced upon every 
page " has been a labor of love. The annalist designs the present issue 
only as the foundation of a volume yet more extended and complete to 
be put to press at some day in the near future. This will afford oppor- 
tunity to correct any mistakes which may have inadvertently crept into 
the present text, and also for additions in the form of extended notices 
of distinguished members of the family, thereby greatly enhancing the 
interest and value of the forthcoming work. Massive materials of this 
kind are already on hand which can be arranged for the press in a 
comparatively short time if sufficient encouragement shall be afibrded 
to warrant the undertaking. A manuscript is already completed con- 
taining the genealogy of Sir John Fitz of Fitz-ford, Devonshire 
County, England, embracing five generations in the 13ih and 14th 
centuries. And there is little or.no doubt that this is the ancient source 
of the family in America. 

No apology is needed for such an undertaking as this ; it justifies 
itself. It cannot but afibrd satisfaction to know that some of the old 
Puritan blood flows in our veins. Unquestionably they were the most 
remarkable body of men which the world has ever produced. . To this 
noble ancestry we owe a deep debt of esteem and gratitude we can 
never fully repay. 

** They that on glorious ancestors enlarge, 
Prove their debt, instead of their discharge." 

Night ThmglUs, 

We may heed Cowper*s caution and do something toward discharg- 
ing our indebtedness by bringing from the treasures of the past and 
holding up to the view of the present and of coming generations, their 
example of private virtue and of public usefulness ; their selPdenying 
moderation in counsel and unsparmg energy in action ; and, above all, 
their childhke trust in God, and their implicit faith in the Gospel of 
Christ as the only sure foundation of Christian churches, schools and 
institutions.

The Family in the United States. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



The American ancestor of the family of Fitts or, Fitz, was Robert. 
who, with his wife, Grace D., was among the original settlers of Sal- 
isbury, Mass. 

" At a Generall Court held at Boston, the 6th day of the 7th month, 
1638, Mr. Bradstreet and associates are alowed (vpon their petition) 
to begin a plantation at Merrimack." In 1639, Winthrop says that 
another plantation was begun upon the north side of Merrimack, called 
Salisbury. 

The record of land granted Robert Fitts is on page 21 of the early 
town records. "The first or original list of y* townsmen of Salisbury 
in y® booke of Records. 

Rob. ffitU. [68 in all.] 

This is a true copie as they were first listed in y® booke of Records. 
As attests ; Tho. Bradbury, rec'r." 

The name " Robert Fitt, Planter,*' as he signed it, occurs in the 
Salisbury and the old Norfolk county records at subsequent dates as fol- 
lows : 1640, October; 1642, March 5; 1649. February 3 and April 
27; 1650, December 25; 1652, July 18; 1657, April 7 and April 
14; 1662, July 2. 

About this time he removed with his family to Ipswich, where we 
find him Jan. 5, 1663, and again Dec. 22, 1664. He died at Ipswich, 
May 9, 1665, leaving, says Savage, •' a wife Grace and a son Abra- 
ham.. [t3.]" 

His Will, dated at Ipswich, Jan. 5, 1663, was admitted to Probate, 
June 26, 1665. An inventory of his estate was returned Sept. 26, 
1665, amounting to 230 £. Os. 4d. It has been said that four hun- 
dred pounds was about the value of the largest estates in New Eng- 
land in 1661. 

His widow was at Ipswich, June 17, and Oct. 9. 1667, and where 
she died April 25, 1684. She was probably a second wife, since Abra- 
ham calls her ** mother-in-law." There are some indications that her 
maiden name was Towusend, since she *' appoints her loving brother, 
Robert Tounsend of Ipswich, her attorney in a suit against Edward 
Gove." One of the wives of Robert Fitts may have been a Barnes, 
since his Will mentions ** my brother, William Barnes." 

Tradition says that previous to his going to Salisbury, Robert Fitts 
settled in Ipswich, to which plantation he came in 1635 from Fitz-ford,

Tavistock, Devoa county, England. He was a man of education, of 
high social position, and of Puritan integrity.

Had he been in Virginia still earlier ? 

Petition, June, 1628. 

" Robert Fitt, Anne his wife, and Alice Harris, a poor widow, to the 
Privy Council. Have been 14 years planters in Virginia, and lately 
brought over 16 hogsheads of tobacco, for which they have not the 
means to pay custom. Pray for a warrant for the free discharge of 
the tobacco, to enable them and their families to return to their planta- 
tions." 

State Papers, Colonial Series, 

I. 2. " Richard Frrrs and Sara Ordwat was marryed Octobar 6th, 
1654." 

He was a kinsman of Robert, and settled first in Ipswich, and afler- 
ward in Newbury. She is supjiosed to have been a sister of James 
Oidway. who was born in Wales about 1620, taxed in Dover in 1649, 
and about that time moved to Newbury. 

" Att the Gen*rall Court holden att New Towne, May 6th, 1635, Wes- 
sacumcon is allowed by the court to be a plantacon =^ # # here- 
after to be called Newberry." The name of Richard Fitts is in the list 
of 91 graaieeson the Proprietor's Book of Records. It also is found in 
town and connty records, 1642, Dec. 7 ; 1655, June 30 and Sept. 24 ; 
1859, Mar. 25; 1661, May 16. 

Richard Fitts, called *' planter," left no children. A son, however, 
of Samuel Symonds, Esq., town clerk, deputy governor, k^,, who is 
supposed by some to have had for his first wife the daughter of Gov. 
Winthrop, was named after him, Richard Fitts Symonds. 

"Richard Fitts dyed Deoembar the 24, 1672. # # # Sarah, 
y* wife of Richard Fitts, dyed April 24, 1667." His Will, dated Dec. 
2, 1672, was presented for Probate, Mar. 25, 1673. Inventory returned 
Mar. 25, 1673 — 164 £. 18 s. 6 d. He appointed his ''well bek>ved 
kinsman, Abvaham Fitt," executor, and gave him all his lands and 
bis personal estate. 

SECOND GENERATION. 

II. 1.-3. '^Abraham ffitts was maried to Sarah ToifaoN the {16th) 
day of May, 1655, by ye worshipfull m'r. Symon Bradstreet. She was 
the daughter of Mr. Simon Thompson, who was born about 1610, was 
in Ipswich 1636, made freeman 1641 or 1648, deeded land to Abraliam 
Fitts 1658, and made his will and died 1676, appointing Abraham Fitts 
joint executor and heir. 

After the death of his first wife, June 5, 1664, Mr. Fitts married the 
widow of Tyler Birdley, who was in Ipswich 1648. ^'Abraham Fitt &:

In 1691, Jan. 16, his father conveyed to him in fee all his lands in 
Salisbury, which included the original grant to his grandfather, Robert 
Fitts. He soon afterward moved to Salisbury, where he built a block 
house for his residencCj and to shield his family from the Indians, by 
whom they were repeatedly attacked. It is a noteworthy circumstance 
that the same lands are now in possession of his descendants, having 
never gone out of the family name.

** The decease of this eminent mother in Israel deserves more tfaan 
tlie BMdre notiee that she died. She was the daughter of Mr. John 
Biiddifi, and widow of the late Mr. David Fitts. She was born ooder 
the British crown, in Seekonk, Dec. 2, 1774, and died in the same 
place, April 29, 1861. From early ehildhood she was taught the trnths 
of the Cliristian religion, which were of nnspeakable oomfori to her m 
after life. She in turn taught these same preeious trutlw to her ova 
obildrettt and lived to see five of tliem» with their husbands and wivea, 
and a BHmber of l>er grand ehtkirent members of the Mime oktinsli with

Umpf, and no one was moise 'Oonstamtly there, and no one niore 4evout 
and happy. 3he ioml the Sabbath sehool and 4}ible claw, and to.ex- 
teeoie ^d age» was a teaelier in the oue» or a niem1)er of l4ie otii^r. 
Slie ^as a lover of good people ; a friend to mission, and to all humane 
and 'benevolent institutions ; -and proved her friendship by her liberal 
contributions, and by the provisions of her Will. 

TlKiugh her mind was partially impaired by great age«oastobe 
forgetfi.ll of worldly things, yet, the mention of the trutlis of the Bible, 
the name of Jesus, or the voice of prayer, would call out sucli expres- 
^ons of joy as to convince all her friends that her knowledge of spirit* 
ual things and her love of them, were as when in the vigor of life. 
Her excellency of character and uniform piety greatly-endeared her to 
the church and people with whom she worshiped, by whom «he will 
be long held in affectionate remembrance. * The righteons shall be in 
ei^^ku»ting remembrance.' She died as she lived, full of faith and of 
the Holy Ghost. Her end was peace. 

Seekonk, June 2, IS6\:* 

Here follows an obituary of Mr. Fitts. 

*^Died in Seekonk, May 18, 1846 ; Mr. David Fitts, son of Daniel 
and Christianna (Smith) Fitts, formerly of Ipswich, Mass., in his 
seventy-ninth year. For more than fifty years he was an inhabitant 
. of Seekonk, where he sustained, by common consent, the reputation of 
a good neighbor, a good citizen, and an honest man. Mr. Fitts was a 
lover af tne Sabbath, a constant attendant upon public worship, and, 
with a single exception, was present at the public services of the An* 
nnal Thanksgiving for more than fifty successive years. In infancy, 
ha. was dedicated to God by his parents in baptism, and, although the 
vows for their son lay long under the altar, yet they were not forgotten 
of God. 

It is a singular fact, and oflen mentioned by the deceased with grati- 
tude, that .he had scarcely a day's sickness in all his life ; and although 
he had nine children, no death had occurred in his family for more than 
half a century. 

For eame time past Mr. Fitts had indulged a hope of a glorious im- 
molality through faith and grace. A short time before his death, he 
expressed his confidence and hope of a better world ; and almost with 
his expiring breath, like Stephen, he committed his departing spirit 
into the hands of his Saviour saying, * Lord Jesus, receive my spirit' " 

The following appropriate lines are engraved on his monument : 

•*Weep not for me — ^'Tis unkindness to weep, 
The weary worn frame is but fallen asleep ; 
It sleeps now in Jesus ! How sweet his repose ! 
No more of fiitigue or endurance it knows/'
